Windows 10: Windows 10 Insider Program Survey Insider
One thing I did not answer, and the reason is sad but safe, is where they ask to contact me, specifically the telephone number. I know scammers are going to pick up on that twist, so not giving the number, I KNOW Microsoft won't be calling me.
I thought the survey was fine. I perceive the Insider Program as forward looking and I like seeing what is coming up and trying something out that is in my areas of interest. I don't see it as a program for fixing current issues in the public releases. The Feedback app is for that. No doubt the Insider program catches many things before they go public, but looking ahead I hope to see important new features in the Redstone builds, particularly in Edge and Mail. The role of the Insider program should shift back to feature evaluation from bug swatting with these next builds.
Your opening sentence contradicts everything you have stated afterwards.
Take into account that Redstone is due soon which will add a new dimension to the insider program.
As for the bean counters (if applicable) surely it is to M$ benefit to have a product to rival Apple or any other future competitor.
Haaaaaaaaaaa! That's funny

Cliff give them Microsoft's number. Microsoft already has your information in your live account.
It was supposed to be two different statements. One about the Insider and one about the company.
Redstone keeps getting pushed back, because of all of the problems they keep having with 10.
Also not everyone in the Insider program are reporting problems. Some are in it, just to get the new build early, thinking that it will fix something, that it will not.
Microsoft is no longer competing with Apple at this point, because Apple has slowed down on anything new, until next quarter. If anything Apple does, it will be hopefully fixing the Bluetooth and battery drain issues with iOS 9.
Both companies have hit the brick wall with consumers. It is now mainly Enterprise that Microsoft especially is trying to keep. Linux is killing them in the Server and AD areas, since the company's that deal with AD for Redhat and Suse, have stepped up their A game.
What is your source for this "Redstone keeps getting pushed back"?
People are perfectly free to join the insider program for their own purposes, whatever they are. The telemetry is what Microsoft uses, not their motives.

Reason: removed unneeded commment
The date has not really come out yet. At this point MS has said that it might come out in the June/July time frame.
Microsoft has said July. That fits with the end of the free upgrade offer at the end of that month. It will be incentive for those not yet adopting to quickly do so. The publicity around the Redstone launch should provide encouragement to adopt before the offer expires.
Should the Windows Insider Program be replaced with the Microsoft Insider Program?
Gabe tweeted this:
Is the Insider program still available if you want to keep getting the new builds as there become available. If so, can it be setup for only one PC so all others on the network don't get the new builds?
